Dancing in the Triangle

Dance Gumbo provides info on upcoming and ongoing Triangle Dance Events

Corona Virus Alert * Likely All Dances are Cancelled

I am not aware of any dances now happening in the Triangle. I would assume any dance is not happening unless you learn otherwise.

I am not going to edit out all dances on this site as it is too much of an effort, so the dances listed are those that would be happening if there was no virus. You can call to see, but as stated, it seems that everybody has cancelled until further notice
